The Despairing Manifestations of Having Drifted Away

“We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away,” Hebrews 2:1

While reflecting upon the recklessness of our Nation, reminders resonate of the detrimental plight that is justly due, because of the deviation of being fundamentally off the path of truth, & how vastly we have drifted away from the foundations and the remarkable Faith of our Forefathers. While looking at some of the poignant words that were spoken and recorded from Men and Women who helped shape our Nation for the good, our heart is inevitably challenged and gripped with urgency in this hour in which we live in this USA. Examining these men and women’s words of passion, coupled with meditating on God’s Word with HIS warnings regarding forgetting HIS EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONS, there comes forth immense concern and even the more so as we watch our Nation literally unravel. Noah Webster said,” Education is useless without The Bible, as The Bible was America’s Basic text book in all fields, and God’s Word contained in The Bible has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct.” Upon looking at this quote from Noah Webster, one is challenged to compare quotes of this present time from those in Leadership, and those currently running for Strategic Offices in our Nation. Our Founders would be appalled to say the least, and how much more so our Sovereign Lord.  George Washington said, “It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey HIS Will, to be grateful for HIS benefits, and humbly to implore HIS protection and favor.” Samuel Adams, Signer of the Declaration of Independence is quoted saying, “I rely upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins.”
 
We are compelled to ask….. have you heard a quote even remotely comparable to these of our Founding Fathers coming from those who make such big declarations as to why they should be elected in offices all across our Nation today? On the average we have gone astray markedly from a God Fearing Nation so much so that it is unquestionably frightening what will become if we do not soon have a Spiritual Awakening that will shake us back on course. John Adams said this, “The Fourth of July ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty.” Abigale Adams, Wife of John Adams said, “The Scriptures tell us righteousness exalteth a Nation.” John Hancock, Signer of The Declaration of Independence is noted saying, “We recognize no Sovereign but God, and no King, but Jesus.” Abraham Lincoln said, “I am busily engaged in study of The Bible.” Abraham Lincoln also said, “I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had absolutely no other place to go.” 
 
We have wandered so far from truth that The Moral Compass for our Nation has long been reduced to nothing, and God Fearing Leadership on a National level is indeed scant. The Church of Jesus Christ is the only hope of a turnaround for the USA. It is up to those who know truth to usher in truth, & it is up to those who know THE WAY to announce THE WAY, & it is up to those who are Light bearers to show forth HIS Radiance. IT is past time for REVIVALIST to stand up and fulfill their God- Ordained Destinies.
 
 President Ronald Reagan gave this speech to the American People on February 1986, “To preserve our blessed land we must look to God, It is time to realize that we need God more than HE needs us. We also have HIS promise that we could take to heart with regard to our country, that “If MY people, which are called by MY Name shall humble themselves and pray and seek MY Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Let us, young and old, join together as did the First Continental Congress, in the first step, in humble heartfelt prayer. Let us do for the Love of God and HIS great goodness in search of HIS guidance and the grace of repentance, in seeking HIS blessings, HIS peace, and the resting of HIS kind and Holy Hands on ourselves, our nation, our friends in the defense of freedom, and all mankind, now and always. The time has come to turn to God and reassert our trust in HIM for the healing of America… Our Country is in need of and ready for a Spiritual renewal. Today we utter no prayer more fervently than the ancient prayer for peace on Earth. If I had a prayer for you today, among those that have all been uttered, it is the one we are so familiar with: “The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make HIS face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up HIS countenance upon you and give you peace”, & God Bless you all.”
 
Wow! 30 years ago, The President of The United States of America praying Gods Word over the people of this Nation, and standing in the place of not only a President but as a Father to this Nation.  OH MY! How we have spiraled downward!!!! Will The Lord tarry 30, 20, 10, 5, even 1 more year? Only HE knows, and if so, what will this Nation look like? We must yield to God & be known again for IN GOD WE TRUST, with the manifestations of God- Fearing Leadership that re-present Christ because presently there is the irrefutable evidence of a Nation whose foundations are crumbling with rapid demonstrations of a people who have drifted away. There remains a Remedy even though the darkness in our Nation is growing heavier by the moment, and THE REMEDY has never changed, HIS NAME IS JESUS. Just as the persistent widow cried out for justice to an ungodly judge, and she got avenged, how much more so God’s elect who cry out In Faithful Persistence to HIM, WHO IS THE RIGHTEOUS JUDGE OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. Luke 18:1-8
